Northwestern Bell By Friekllig A northeast Cedar Rapids trucker wun his case in mag- istrate's court Tuesday after- noon but tils: victory was tempered not KettitiK to make a lest case of Cedur Rapids' truck route ordi- nances. Leo Richard Jaincs, 808 Blairs Kerry road NE, was churgcd with driving his 17- tou truck Oct. 18 in lite 900 block of Center Point road NE. This and most other por- tions of Center. Point road, as well as much of Edgewood road, are off-limits to trucks in excess of five tons by city ordinance to the chagrin of James and other independent truckers living .on the northeast side. George Davis of Tim Council street NE. a friend of James' who was one of several scheduled to appear in court as prospective defense wit- nesses, said (he embargo on these two main streets forces truckers-to go far out of their way to get to downtown Cedar Rapids. Davis pointed out that lo gel lo the downtown factories, trucks niust go on Collins road to First avenue a route which costs .more money and uses more fuel. Davis further contends pol ice do not stop trucks from firms in northeast Cedar Rap- ids which use Center Point road. "If they're going to arrest us, Ihojr1; should also arrest those Davis claimed. So when James was picked up, ho and his friends decided to present testimony on their gripes Ih court. They did not gel a cliance, however., because James' lawyer rested his case wilhout presenting any witnesses. lie merely argued that a provision of the truck, ordi- nance requires the arresting officer to ask the truck driver the destination of his load. If il is in the vicinity of the point of arrest, the driver may nol be ticketed. In James' case, the officer could not remember asking where the cargo was headed for. So Magistrate Brent llarstad found James not guilty. Davis said afterward If given the chance, he and the other drivers would have complained about Die em- bargo and asked for equal protection under the ordi- nance.
